After you download the zombie face and head pattern, print out the zombie face on white paper and the head and eye template on green paper.
Next, you will color the corner of the paper plate with the marker. It doesn’t matter if this is neat, because it will be mostly covered up. You can use the same color marker as your yarn, or a contrasting color like we did.
Then squeeze a generous amount of glue on the marker part of the plate. Take the yarn and form a twisting pattern to create the zombie brains.
Next, cut out the pattern for the springy eye ball & head from the colored paper. Note on the template that you cut about 3/4th of the plate and rip the other side.
Glue this head piece to the paper plate, positioning the open, ripped edge to expose the zombie yarn brain. A glue stick will work best to stick the paper to the plate, but more white glue will is necessary for the parts where the paper is over the yarn.
Fold the springy eye piece in an accordion style, going back and forth.
Using a scissor, cut the face pieces out of the template.
Tape the accordion paper piece to the eye ball with the half closed eye.
Glue the pieces of the face to the plate. You can add some character to the plate by drawing scars using the marker.
Your spooky zombie is ready!
The springy eye really adds a fun creep factor. It would fun to make a number of these using different colored paper and yarn. They would make a fun Halloween decoration!
